Les Bourgeois winery, Missouri, is located on the banks of the Missouri River where they grow Norton and other American and hybrid grapes. Peter F May went to taste their Norton and stayed for a delightful lunch at the cliff top bistro with stunning views along the Missouri.

Vineyard at End of World - Book Review
In 'The Vineyard at the End of the World: Maverick Winemakers and the Rebirth of Malbec' Ian Mount recounts 500 years of wine in Argentina, with emphasis on recent times and those responsible for changing a moribund industry and making an unfashionable grape variety a flagship for their country.

Barrels, Bottles and how the Butler got his name
Only the best wines will be served when world famous opera diva Dame Nellie Melba comes to sing at Downton Abbey. But Peter F May is not convinced by the wine’s labels.

Alsace Wine
Alsace is France's northernmost wine region. Alsace wine bottles are tall and thin and look Germanic yet they are not alike in taste. Peter F May stayed in Alsace and considers its history, location and wines.

Romance of Grape Picking
What could be more bucolic than picking grapes? A chance to get back to simpler times, admire beautiful scenery and maybe enjoy a glass or two of the previous vintage. So why did Peter F May decline this romantic opportunity?

Scavi and Ray Prosseco Launch
Scavi & Ray is a new Prosecco brand with big ideas. They're targeting fashionable young women with single serving bottles with straws. Peter F May supped with the fashionistas when he attended a Fashion Week launch party in an up-market designer bar.

Why Old Vines Make Better Wines
Old Vines make better wine, so they say but what is it that make old vines special? Peter F May asks a leading winemaker that very question.

Wine's Supporting Acts
They’re the unappreciated wines ignored by most, they’re the varieties you’ve not heard of & those known only when grown elsewhere. Peter F May looks at the Chablis that isn’t Chardonnay, Burgundy’s other white grape, and California’s 5th most grown black wine grape that you’ve never ever heard of.

New Zealand South Island Wines
The first Sauvignon Blanc vines were planted in Marlborough on New Zealand's South Island in 1975. Within 10 years they were winning international acclaim and many now think of them as the standard for the variety. Peter F May looks at how an island thought too cold for vines became a world beater.

New Zealand North Island Wines
The second edition of Johnson's 'World Atlas of Wine' published in 1977 doesn't even mention New Zealand. Nowadays very few restaurants and wine shops don't carry its wines. Peter F May looks at how this remote island's wines gained world fame.
